You’ve never shot anything like the monocoque-designed 2016 PSE Carbon Air®, a revolutionary new breakthrough in bow technology. Engineered with our new PSE True Carbon™Technology, the PSE Carbon Air® is the lightest ultra-performance compound bow on the market at just over 3 lbs. The Carbon Air® is also dead quiet and comfortable in your hand, with PSE’s proprietary Structural, Rigid Acoustic Core (S-RAC) suppressing noise and vibration, as well as acting with the carbon as an insulator against the heat and cold.
Never before has so much cutting-edge technology been packed into one bow…a customized PSE HD hybrid cam delivers a smooth draw cycle throughout, while the Center Lock Speed Pocket and patented X-Force™ parallel split limbs give the Carbon Air® the energy to fire arrows at a blazing 340 fps.
The Carbon Air® is available in peak weights up to 70 lbs. with an 80% let-off, 6-1/8” brace height, and 32” axle to axle. It also comes standard with PSE’s all-new features; Backstop™ 4, SHOCK MODZ™ Limb Dampers, and factory ships with ABB Platinum Strings and genuine titanium pocket hardware. The Carbon Air also includes the exclusive Carbon Air carry case, available only for a limited time.
The Carbon Air is not sold online and is available EXCLUSIVELY at your local PSE Dealer. Click here to find a dealer near you!
Available in all Black, or black riser with Mossy Oak Break-Up Country limbs, or black riser with Skullworks 2 limbs.
PSE Revolutionizes the Carbon Bow.
PSE first introduced a carbon bow back in 1996, but today there are improved methods of manufacturing carbon that allow products to be lighter, more rigid and almost indestructible. That’s why PSE decided it was time to rewrite the book on carbon bow technology… and we’ve done just that.
PSE has taken the same single-shell monocoque carbon construction principles used by aerospace, automotive, yachting, and cycling, and applied them to archery with the revolutionary new 2016 PSE Carbon Air® and our TrueCarbon™ Technology.
The Incredible Strength of Carbon
There’s a reason why the F22 Raptor has over 350 carbon parts; it’s because carbon is strong, rigid, lightweight and durable.
More importantly, prepreg carbon allows you to optimize fiber alignment to strengthen the product and control flex. Carbon also has significantly less thermal conductivity and a lower thermal expansion coefficient than aluminum.
When applied to a bow, this means a light, stable platform that is comfortable in your hand in all temperatures and conditions. Impressive, sure… but the engineers at PSE knew they could make carbon bow technology even better.
How Monocoque Construction Changes Everything…
Monocoque construction creates a single structural carbon fiber shell. When Lamborghini created their 2 million dollar supercar, the Reventón, they used a monocoque carbon body rather than a metal design. This carbon shell created an unbelievably strong and lightweight platform.
This is exactly what PSE has done with the 2016 PSE Carbon Air®. Not satisfied with the weight and limitations of the solid carbon components used by other bows, we’ve developed our TrueCarbon™ technology to create a single structural carbon shell.
When combined with our proprietary new Structural Rigid Acoustic Core (S-RAC™), this delivers the lightest, strongest, quietest, and most stable carbon bow platform ever.
PSE’s New S-RAC Technology Stops Vibration at the Core
The TrueCarbon™ shell of the PSE Carbon Air® is filled with our proprietary Structural Rigid Acoustic Core (S-RAC™) Technology.
This lightweight fill material is designed to absorb and suppress vibration and noise at the bow’s core, making the bow dead quiet in your hand.
Thanks to PSE’s TrueCarbon™ shell and proprietary S-RAC™ core of the Carbon Air®, the bow weighs significantly less than other carbon or aluminum bows, while the titanium limb and pocket hardware also reduces weight by another 2.5 oz.
This drops the physical weight of the Carbon Air® to an incredibly light 3.2 lbs., making it the lightest high-performance compound bow on the market.
